Null function

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A null function is one which does nothing and returns nothing.

In WoW, the majority of null functions are ones which are not accessible to addons but which are visible in Lua either because of how they are accessed in WoW's native code or because they are used in GlueXML.

Many null functions will generate errors or access violations when called from an addon.
